The Drumbeat for War

August 14, 2014
unnamed (1)Gaza. Syria. Iraq. Ukraine. All around the world conflicts seem to escalate. And US war hawks are never satisfied, demanding more interventionism, more militarism, more foreign aid, more bombs, and more killing at every turn. But there are better approaches to conflicts: trade and commerce, secession, private diplomacy, and a just war approach to defense against aggressors. These ideals are explored by our own Tom Woods in his remarkable survey of American antiwar thought, We Who Dared to Say No to War. Laurence Vance similarly explores important Christian teachings about war in his collection of essays entitled War, Christianity, and the State. Both of these important titles will inform and challenge your view of conflicts between nations, and serve as a welcome alternative to the current drumbeat for war.
